This Tokyo import from Japanese film and TV star Tsuyoshi Ihara showcases okonomiyaki, savory, griddled pancakes. First timers can reference the okonomiyaki diagrams on the wall—the eponymous version ($13) starts with batter filled with egg, pork, sweet shrimp, tender squid and potato chunks and topped with Kewpi mayo, sweet and savory sauce, bonito flakes and, for good measure, a Japanese flag toothpick. Other variations include combinations like garlic and Angus beef ($13), mentaiko (pollack roe), cheese and bacon ($15), or a veg-friendly corn, asparagus, tomato and avocado ($12). Stir-fry noodle versions are also available along with other menu highlights such as mini ramen ($6) made with beef and chicken broth, braised beef, pickled ginger, soft-boiled egg and fried scallions and a bun-less Tsukune Hamburger ($8)—minced chicken patty on a sizzling platter with cabbage, fried egg andmayo, teriyaki sauce and seaweed.
